As we age, our body starts to show signs of aging, such as sagging and loose skin, static wrinkles, and stubborn facial creases. Such changes can happen due to the loss of elasticity and the decreased production of collagen and elastin.
Dermal fillers such as Sculptra can best address such skin issues. Not only do they add a natural lift and help plump up wrinkles but, they also stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production.
Read on to learn more about Sculptra!
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a safe and FDA-approved injectable filler that helps add volume or address age-related volume loss to provide your skin with an instant, lasting lift.
Unlike most fillers, Sculptra is made of poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic material that also stimulates collagen production. It can help soften facial lines and wrinkles and make your skin appear smoother than ever.
What Are The Target Areas For Sculptra?
The formulation and consistency of Sculptra filler make it ideal for treating:
• Deep facial wrinkles and creases.
• Marionette lines and sunken cheeks
• Knee and elbow wrinkles.
It can also be used for a non-surgical butt lift or buttock augmentation, to add definition to your chest, and to treat cellulite.
What Makes It Better Than Other Fillers?
1. It Lasts Longer
One of the most important reasons why Sculptra injectables are preferred over other dermal fillers in some cases is that they last much longer than others. On average, Sculptra can last for 2 to 3 years, as compared to 4 to 6 months for other fillers.
2. It Is A Low-Maintenance Dermal Filler
Since it lasts longer than other fillers, you will require fewer retreatments over the years, making it more affordable.
Even if you’re unable to schedule a follow-up treatment, you’ll still have relatively fewer wrinkles and lines due to the extra collagen produced after the first treatment.
3. It Gives Natural Looking Results
The collagen-inducing properties of Sculptra produce natural-looking results over time. It doesn’t just help lift up the sagging skin. Rather, it boosts natural collagen production to rejuvenate it from the inside out.
PLLA Promotes Long-Term Collagen Production
Sculptra contains poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA), which acts as a collagen stimulator. Once it has been injected into the skin, it triggers the naturally occurring fibroblasts (collagen cells) to produce more collagen. Compared to other fillers that only provide a temporary boost in volume and help smooth out wrinkles to some extent, Sculptra does an excellent job at rejuvenating your skin from within for longer-lasting results.
No Risk Of Side Effects
The PLLA chemical compound has long been used in dissolvable sutures since the body naturally absorbs it with a low risk of side effects or allergies.
Requires No Downtime At All
Unlike surgical procedures, Sculptra is minimally invasive and doesn’t require any extensive pretreatment care or downtime. You might expect mild redness or bruise at the injection site, but that usually subsides within a day or two.
It is important to remember that only a well-trained aesthetic injector can help you make the most out of Sculptra safely and effectively. At Vikara Esthetics, Miami, FL, our expert injectors have helped countless people achieve their desired aesthetic goals with Sculptra.
